"'It’s really gut-wrenching,' Jocey Alec, daughter of Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chief Woos, says."
"The mountain woodland shimmers green with hints of rust-coloured Fall descending to envelop it in silent foliage. The steady roar of a glacial river echoes nearby. Tiny families of grouse scurry through the underbrush while other wild birds fill the sky with their melodies. Bears leave red-berried scat piles dispersed on the forest floor, hints of their seasonal feasting.
But that isn’t all you can hear out here on the Morice River Forest Service Road southwest of Houston, B.C.
The chatter of natural life is interrupted by pulsating construction equipment and the constant hum of industrial traffic."
